1. What advantage does a pressure sensor insole have over a force plate?
2. EMG measures electrical activity generated by a muscle when it contracts. How can we use this information for understanding movement?
3. Why is modeling important in biomechanics?
4. Pick a context where you would like to understand human movement better. What would be the different pieces of technology you could use in the context? Name at least 2 pieces of technology
Be specific with its application (for e.g., if you are using EMG to understand how expert musicians play the piano – don’t just say “EMG can be used to measure muscle activity” – instead be specific like “EMG can be used to measure differences between experts and novices in how different arm and hand muscles are coordinated).
Each student in a group should pick a different context
